TESCO HomeGrown NFL Round 2

Round 2 of the TESCO HomeGrown Ladies National Football League will take place this Sunday throughout the country with some big games down for decision.

In Division 1 Monaghan will hope to keep their good start to the league going as they welcome Mayo to Iniskeen. Monaghan enjoyed a close fought victory over Cork last time out with a goal from Cathriona McConnell making a huge difference in the end. Not for the first time it was the sharp shooting of Cora Staunton that guaranteed the points for Mayo as they defeated Tyrone. Both teams will want to continue their good start to the League. Dublin welcome Donegal to the capital this weekend where they will hope to build on their win over Meath in the last round. Laois travel to Ulster again this weekend where they will take great encouragement after their win over Donegal last week, Tyrone will be looking to kickstart their campaign at home in Omagh. Meath face the unenviable task of travelling to face a Cork side who will want to put down a marker after their defeat to rivals, Monaghan, last weekend.

Kerry and Clare will have to wait until the weekend of March 9/10th to come face to face as their fixture this weekend has been postponed. Cavan host Kildare in their first home game of the season with both teams hoping to register their first victory of the league, Kildare will not be short on confidence after their last gasp equaliser away to Galway last weekend. Westmeath and Fermanagh both enjoyed good victories in round 1 but Fermanagh will be hoping to make home advantage count. Galway welcome Waterford to Tuam Stadium knowing that they let a victory slip through their fingers against Kildare and will hope to inflict further damage on Waterford who suffered a crushing defeat against Kerry.

Armagh host Wicklow in Culloville and will be favourites to collect a win after Wicklow’s heavy defeat by Leitrim last time out. Leitrim will expect a tougher challenge when they face Wexford this weekend but will still fancy their chances of making it two wins from two. Sligo were big winners against Longford in Round 1 but they will face a difficult challenge against a resilient Down team this week. The other match in the round will match up Diane O’Hora’s Longford and a Tipperary team that are high on confidence from their morale boosting victory over Wexford.

Limerick will be expecting to win again when they face Derry this weekend after their whopping victory over Carlow and their visitor’s equally one sided defeat to Offaly. Offaly can expect a far more competitive test this week when they welcome Roscommon to Páirc Bride. Carlow have been forced to concede their away fixture against Antrim this weekend giving the Junior All Ireland Champions an extra week to finalise their preparations.

All fixtures will thrown in at 2pm on Sunday.
